For six years until late 2016, he practiced landscape design and urbanism at WAA International (a subsidiary of WAA Montréal) in Shanghai, China. Rem is passionate about cultural interpretations of place and how texture and form can provide a platform for harmonic spaces. While at WAA, he served as Chief Designer of the Scenic Villas residential project in Nanjing. He was also involved in studying historical and ritualistic contexts and preserving the memory of place through site and amenity design for such projects as Raffles City Chongqing, Shanghai Rainbow City Lot 2 & 3 (mixed use; part of a 10 city block revitalization) and for the Shanghai Rainbow City Streetscape. Rem is committed to utilizing best practices in design, specifications and sustainability.
